Actor Michael McKean Struck by Car on Upper West Side in Manhattan

The 'This is Spinal Tap' star was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital in critical condition, fire officials said.

Actor Michael McKean, who starred in the film “This is Spinal Tap” and TV’s “Laverne and Shirley,” was recovering Tuesday night in a Manhattan hospital after he was struck by a car on the upper West Side, police sources said.

McKean, 64, who played Lenny on the hit television show, was seen bleeding from the head after a car barreled into him at W. 86th St. and Broadway just before 3 p.m., witnesses and the FDNY said.

The actor, who also portrayed Spinal Tap’s lead singer and guitarist David St. Hubbins in the cult classic “This is Spinal Tap,” was initially taken to St. Luke’s Hospital in critical condition, fire officials said.

His status was upgraded to stable condition at the hospital where doctors discovered he had a broken leg, according to his publicist Harriet Sternberg.

“He’ll be okay, hopefully he’ll be fine” said Sternberg. “It’s pretty devastating.”

McKean’s wife, actress Annette O’Toole, was flying from Los Angeles — where the couple also has a home — to be by her husband’s side, Sternberg said.

No criminality was suspected in the smash-up, according to police. Two other people were taken to the same hospital, although the extent of their injuries was unknown, officials said.

McKean was slotted to perform Wednesday night at 8 p.m. in his latest Broadway role as “Dick Jensen” in Gore Vidal’s “The Best Man” at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on W. 45th St., Sternberg said.

“It’s the first time he will have ever missed a curtain in his entire life,” Sternberg said. “He’s never missed stage, screens in film or television. His understudy has never gone on in 40-plus years,” she said.

That guy is a legend. I think he'll be OK, just a lot of blood.

Yeah I hope he pulls out. He's in some of my favorite movies. Him and Christopher Guest are comic geniuses.
